I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, spending time with the people you love! We kicked off our week on Sunday, having Thanksgiving with my dad’s family and spending the afternoon putting together our gingerbread village. We continued our festivities on Thanksgiving day at Jud’s family’s house and our last one will be on Sunday with my mom’s side of the family. It may seem like a lot to some people but to our family it’s just the normal holiday season. I would never want to skip a special family Thanksgiving with any side of our family. We love everyone so much and just have to split up our time so that we can make it all work.
Here are a few pictures of our little gingerbread village that Jordyn is now using as her own personal doll town…it’s so cute… We’ve made gingerbread houses for years now, it’s the perfect Thanksgiving tradition that says “once turkey dinner is over it’s time for Christmas!”. The kids have so much fun, it’s creative and messy and there’s candy…I mean come on, you can’t beat it!
My girls are probably the only people I know who aren’t really into eating turkey and all the fixins, they each ate the roll and peas off their plates. But they certainly didn’t say no to pie! We’ve had lots of pie this week, I think I’m about ready to not have pie for another year. I thought it would be fun to share a picture of our first Thanksgiving with a baby in 2009 and now with three beautiful girls in 2015…obviously no one is looking but hey what are you gunna do?
So now we’re in full Christmas mode and it started at 12am Black Friday for us. We were in the line at Toy’s R Us when they opened at midnight and spent the night/morning shopping till we dropped. I only go out Black Friday if I know what I’m getting and there’s good deals on stuff I already need. We got quite a bit today and I’m pretty excited for Christmas! I feel like it’s so close but so far at the same time. It will be here before we know it thought!
